Kasbah Tamadot


Kasbah Tamadot sits in an idyllic location nestled among the breathtaking High Atlas Mountains, creating an immense sense of privacy. The property is the former home of Luciano Tempo, the renowned antiques dealer and interior designer. Luciano filled Kasbah Tamadot with a range of beautiful antiques, collected from India, Indonesia and North Africa.  When Sir Richard Branson bought Kasbah Tamadot in 1998, he also inherited Luciano’s 1,000 square metre warehouse, filled to the brim with his treasures. As you wander around you will see pieces of Luciano’s collection that have been used to furnish the Kasbah today.  Sir Richard Branson discovered Kasbah Tamadot when he visited Morocco with the goal of circumnavigating the globe in a hot air balloon. It was in fact his parents Ted and Eve Branson who found the beautiful Kasbah and dreamed of turning it into a wonderful Moroccan retreat. Richard didn’t quite manage to complete his hot air balloon mission but he did purchase this magnificent Kasbah and his parents’ dream became a reality when Kasbah Tamadot opened its doors to its first hotel guests in 2005.

Subsequent to the 1998 acquisition by Sir Richard Branson, the Kasbah Tamadot was wonderfully restored to become one of the most luxurious properties in Morocco. Tamadot is full of peaceful courtyards, hidden staircases, landscaped gardens and breathtaking views. Many of its’ staff members come from the surrounding Berber villages, giving you a sense of staying in a Moroccan home rather than a hotel.  Luxury rooms and suites are all individually-decorated using traditional Moroccan furnishings and antiques while the restaurant, bars and outdoor infinity pool all offer stunning panoramic views.
